    Ideas wanted

    Hi folks. I currently wear either a g shock (current one is the GA-1000-1AER) or a citizen Eco drive (Calbre 2100) so quite like large watches. I'm looking for something new and would like ideas for something sub £200. My wish list is:

    Analog (happy with digital elements as well)
    Diver style (won't be used for diving but I like the look)
    large and clear face
    good lume
    date
    Solar or automatic

    I like the look of some seikos and have tried the SSC017 which I think looks really nice but looks too small on my wrist. The watch I'm leaning towards but doesn't tick all the boxes is the GN-1000b-1aer.

    So any ideas gratefully received.

    If you think the SSC017 is a bit on the small side look at the SUN019 and its ilk as Yanke suggests.

    Or check out the Citizen BJ7080-53E. I had one of those and it was a nice watch, just kind of big for me.

    You can get it with either a blue dial bezel or black dial bezel for around $150. US. The case size is 47mm, 14mm thick, 300 meter water resistant with an Seiko NH35A automatic movement in it. Nice watch for the money.

    I like the look of the 007 but it's only 42mm which I think is to small. The citizen is 45mm so I don't think I want to go smaller than that. After wearing g shocks for so long it takes me a day or two to get used to that. I keep looking at the monsters but again not sure on size.

    I've tried looking in watch shops but seiko's don't seem very well represented locally.
